Mogilny burst extends Sabres streak



By The Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Alexander Mogilny scored goals 2:13 apart as Toronto extended Buffalo's winless streak to 10 games.

Mikael Renberg also scored, and Ed Belfour stopped 35 shots for the Maple Leafs, who scored three second-period goals in less than 3 minutes to overcame a 1-0 deficit.

Stu Barnes and Tim Connolly scored for the reeling Sabres. The 10-game winless skid (0-8-2) matched the second longest in franchise history, and is two short of the record set in the 1991-92 season.

The Flyers snapped Carolina's three-game winning streak. Still, the Hurricanes improved to 4-0-2-1 seven games into their nine-game homestand and have points in 11 of 12 games.

The overtime loss at the RBC Center was 2-1 to the Flyers 10 days ago. Since then, Philadelphia is 0-2-2.

Jeremy Roenick scored on Philadelphia's first shot just 2:18 in on a 3-on-2 break.

Coyotes 5, Thrashers 1

ATLANTA - Tony Amonte had a goal and an assist as Phoenix used a pair of quick strikes to end a three-game losing streak.

It was the highest scoring game this season for Phoenix, which scored four goals only once. Claude Lemieux added a shorthanded goal for the Coyotes.

Lightning 4, Sharks 2

TAMPA, Fla. - Dave Andreychuk set an NHL record by scoring his 250th career power-play goal as Tampa Bay beat San Jose.

Andreychuk was tied for the record with Phil Esposito, a radio broadcaster for the Lightning.

Ruslan Fedotenko scored at 11:14 of the third period and Martin St. Louis added a goal at 18:07 for the Southeast Division-leading Lightning, 7-0-0-1 on home ice.

Patrick Marleau had two goals for San Jose, which has a five-game winless streak (0-3-1-1). He tied it at 1 at 10:47 of the first and got the Sharks even again at 2-all with a third-period power-play goal at 7:03.

Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart made his first appearance of the season.

Red Wings 2, Mighty Ducks 1

DETROIT - Sergei Fedorov's scored his NHL-record 12th overtime goal at 4:39 of the extra session to lift Detroit over Anaheim.

Petr Sykora put Anaheim up 1-0 with 9:53 left in the second period.

Stars 4, Avalanche 2

Colorado goalie Patrick Roy became the NHL career leader in minutes played, but he couldn't prevent the Avalanche from losing in regulation on the road for the first time this season. Roy broke the mark held by Terry Sawchuk.

The Western Conference-leading Stars won for the fifth time in seven games and improved to 6-0-0-1 at American Airlines Center.

Bill Guerin and Pierre Turgeon scored power-play goals, and the Stars killed six of seven penalties. Goalie Marty Turco rebounded from a rocky start to make 19 saves.

Capitals 2, Blackhawks 2

CHICAGO - Chris Simon's power-play goal with 1:26 left in the third period lifted Chicago into a tie with Washington.

Phil Housley also scored for the Blackhawks, who outshot the Capitals 38-16. Jocelyn Thibault made 14 saves as the Blackhawks extended their unbeaten streak to five games (3-0-2).

Jaromir Jagr had a goal and an assist, and Kolzig made 36 saves for Washington. Robert Lang also scored for the Capitals.
